'I’ve learnt so much from the experiences of migrating twice in my life, building a business from the ground up, and navigating through 35 years of professional experience. The role of TEC Chair provides the opportunity to share this knowledge and experience.'
Thirty five years in business teaches you a lot about success, failure and human nature. After selling her business, Winsome Bernard now shares what she’s learned from those lessons as a leadership and executive coach, growth adviser, mentor, and TEC Group Chair.
Winsome is passionate about building strong and positive values-based workplace cultures, and the high performing teams that are born as a result. She works with leaders to help them develop their growth strategies, to nurture their people and build their businesses to achieve their full potential.
Winsome’s vibrant and engaging nature brings a new kind of passion and energy to TEC mentoring.
After working in recruitment for over 15 years in the UK and Australia, she built her own firm from the ground up, achieving a turnover of 60 million dollars per annum before successfully selling to a large international company in 2019.
Since the sale of her business, Winsome has turned her attention to sharing what she has learned from her career, helping companies through recruitment challenges, as well as assisting on business development and growth. She also holds a number of advisory positions with various organisations. Her career highlights include:
- CEO and business owner for 25 years
- 12 years Board member experience and nomination and remuneration committees
- Recognised in the Top 25 Women in Business in Sydney
- Nominated as Telstra Businesswoman of the Year
